    Gay activists are some of the most intolerant, hateful people that I have ever seen.

    Nobody is promoting discrimination against gays, yet the gay activists are calling for hatred against those who oppose re-defining marriage.

    The words hate, bigotry and intolerance are mainstays of the gay activists' arsenal against anyone who disagrees with the gay agenda, yet they seem to be the intolerant, bigoted and hateful ones.

    Actually some groups call for discrimination against gays in their opposition to civil marriage equality.

    We can certainly take the "hate" word off the table. It's not hate motivated. IMO, what comes more often is ignorance and fear. What I mean by that, is those who oppose marriage equality do so out of "fear" of their religion somehow being harmed by gays and lesbians being able to civilly marry. Also, when I use the word, "ignorance", I mean that some folks do not know any gay or lesbian couples or families and they don't know how boring and ordinary our lives really are.

    They know only of some of the most extreme images of people in Gay Pride Parades.

    Gay activists promote the word hate. They constantly use the symbol "H8" when referring to those opposed to redlining the word marriage. I do not know of any other group that constantly calls good people haters.

    I do not know of any mainstream group that calls for discrimination against homosexuals.

    I have many gay friends (I don't separate gay and lesbian), none of them are activists. I like my gay friends, I don't like gay activists. If you're gay, be gay and shut up about it.

    if it wasn't for gay activists, your gay friends would still have to be closeted.

    do you 'shut up' about your mate? your family? the people you date(d)?

    jillian, Do you think that it is OK for gay activists to call people "haters" and "bigots" just because those people oppose the redefinition of marriage?

    What it gets down to for me, is not announcing, "I'm here, I'm queer", but it comes out when you're getting to know someone and they assume you're heterosexual.

    No one wants to lie. And especially if having a long term relationship is something that is important and meaningful to your life.

    Marriage equality is non-discrimination.
